The Woonsocket library was recently awarded a summer reading grant from the Stephanie Miller Davis foundation. This is the second year librarian Tracey Steele has applied for and been awarded the grant. The grant amount of $1,500 will help purchase summer reading kick off materials, as well as summer reading incentives throughout the summer months. 

The Stephanie Miller-Davis Library Summer Reading Grant Program is in its fifth year of supporting summer reading programs in small rural communities in partnership with the South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF) and the South Dakota State Library (SDSL). The program to date has distributed nearly $200,000 to libraries in rural communities across South Dakota.

This year’s South Dakota Girls State will take place June 3-8 on the campus of the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, and Emilie Lindgren will be among the delegates attending. Lindgren is a junior at Woonsocket High School and is the daughter of Reid and Rachel Lindgren of Woonsocket. There are no candidates attending from Sanborn Central, as there are no girls in the junior class.

Every year for the past 77 years, The South Dakota American Legion Auxiliary has invited young ladies to attend a week of learning about how the American government works while enjoying time together as peers at the American Legion Auxiliary’s South Dakota Girls State. Along with learning about the American government, attendees also gain leadership skills and build connections with others that could help with career plans or become lifelong friendships. There are scholarship opportunities, as well, that are open to all participants and only available at Girls State. The benefits of attending are numerous and different for every girl who goes.
